Predicting other vehicles’ behavior

Predicts future risks, to enable saver, smoother automatic driving.


  • Predicts the position and trajectory of the other vehicle a few seconds ahead, based on the shape of the intersection and lane information.
  • Detects locations where pedestrians might suddenly appear from a blind spot, using only the vehicle’s onboard sensors.

Applications



  • Strategic decision making in automatic driving based on risk prediction
  • Automatic brakes and other Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS)
  • Vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications; e.g., notification of vehicles that present potential risks.
  • Route planning for transport robots that do not interfere with workers in logistics warehouses
  • Other cases of mobile robot control requiring attention to moving objects nearby

Benchmarks, strengths, and track record



  • Can be applied to intersections with any shapes, to enable simultaneous predictions of which lane will be used when multiple lanes are available.
  • Predicts behavior on any place without preparing high-precision maps in advance. 
  • Predicts the shape of roads and obstacles using multiple candidates, where blind spots prevent narrowing down to a single candidate.
  • Accepted by top international conferences on robots and image processing
  • International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) 2020
  • Intelligent Transportation Systems Conference (ITSC) 2019
  • Intelligent Vehicles Symposium (IV) 2018
  • Winter Conference on Applications of Computer Vision (WACV) 2021
